Question Anyone have this tank?

I like this tank, it's 5 gallons and comes with a filter. It's only $20 on sale and I was thinking about ordering a few for my fish and my nieces betta.

Anyone have one?

Don't think I've ever seen that one before. As long as it's not at all wobbly, should be good value.

Amazon (and Petco, I think) have the Marineland Hex5 kit for 30 bucks - half of what I paid for it. I've been nothing but happy with it - it may be a nice option for you, as well.

It doesn't look bad. You can baffle the filter if its too strong. I'm gonna have to look into getting something like this cause i'm in need of 3 tanks lol. The price is awesome!

I don't have one of these myself, but I've heard that they're very good tanks. I'd say go for it. ;)

My only hesitation towards those are the ones that come with filters in them tend to be too much flow for bettas and I'd always add a prefilter sponge on the intake tube to keep accidents from happening.

I've seen this tank before at Walmart and it was really sturdy. Was thinking about buying it but I don't have any room. Kaoru isn't that big yet so I got some time. One thing I learned about setting up a tank is listening to reviews is also very helpful to avoid issues.

Me and editing I swear, it has a whisper filter that can put out a strong current. I have noticed -by accident- that if you put some fake plants (99 cent ones from petsmart in my case) around the entrance it slows the current as well.

Oh! Thank you for bringing up the filter, almost forgot about it.....
I believe the filter it comes with is one of those whisper internal filters, and they do definitely put out a very strong current.....I had it in a 10 gallon with a few other species of fish and even they had trouble with the current. I'd definitely suggest replacing the filter all together.
